This swing has deluxe, rich soft goods including plush boa that will embrace baby in luxurious softness. There’s an airy canopy on the back of the swing and 3 delicate soft toys hanging from the mirror mobile overhead. The seat has a removable support for newborns in an adorable puppy theme. The seat has 2 recline positions and the swing features 3 seat positions providing mom with options for her baby along with the soothing side to side cradle motion and traditional head to toe swinging motion. Music includes 16 tunes 8 soothing and 8 entertaining along with 2 nature sounds. The swing has 6 distinct speeds with Smart Swing technology, volume control and the frame folds for storage. An AC adapter has also been added to save on batteries.
I bought this for my son before he was born after debating whether to get this or one other Fisher Price swing. I chose this one because I liked the fact that it could swing back and forth as well as side to side. I also liked that it could be plugged in instead of having to run on batteries. It looks great with the furniture in my living room and it works perfectly. My baby loves it and he takes at least one nap a day in it.
My son will stare up at the mobile for a long time and he will stay entertained. He also loves the mirror on the bottom of the mobile and if he is not ready to nap in the swing he will smile and talk to himself. The music isn’t too overwhelmingly obnoxious like most swings are. They have a cute little selection of tunes for the baby to swing to and it also has some nature sounds if you don’t want to play music.
It makes a crunching sound when it first starts up. I think it’s just adjusting to the weight of the baby but it is kind of an annoying sound. It also will not run properly if the seat is not adjusted right. So I have had a couple of instances where I thought that the motor wasn’t working properly and instead I just needed to fix the seat.
Altogether, I think this is one of the better options for swings out there. It’s affordable but doesn’t rack up costs down the road by eating up batteries. I love mine and I will use for any future children as it has held up well enough that I am sure it will still be able to be used. I would definitely recommend this swing to anyone who is in the market for one.
